About the wills

Hyd 1858, profwyd ewyllysiau gan llysoedd Eglwys Loegr (a gan llysoedd yr eglwys Gatholig cyn y Diwygiad). Profwyd rhan fwyaf ewyllysiau Llangynfelyn sy'n dal mewn bodolaeth yn llys consistori Tyddewi. Maent yn cael eu cadw gyda chofnodion yr Eglwys yng Nghymru yn LlGC, lle mae mynegai ar gael. Mae'r rhain (rhan fwyaf yr ewyllysiau yma) yn cael eu rhestru fel 'NLW, SD' gyda blwyddyn profiant (blwyddyn marwolaeth, neur flwyddyn ddilynol fel arfer) a chyfeirnod o fewn y flwyddyn. Profwyd mwyafrif gweddill yr ewyllysiau cyn 1858 wedi'u rhestru yma yn Llys Uchelfraint Caer-gaint. Maent yn y PRO nawr.

Erbyn 1858, mae ewyllysiau wedi cael eu profi yn llysoedd profiant sifil. Mae rhestr flynyddol grantiau profiant yn Lloegr a Chymru ar gael mewn nifer o swyddfeydd sirol.

Mae'r casgliadau cyfreithiwr, teulu a stad sydd yn yr LlGC yn cynnwys nifer o frasluniau a chopau ewyllysiau, ac ewyllysiau heb eu profi. Mae'r rhain yn dyddio o'r cyfnod cyn 1858, ac wedyn. Mae sawl ohonynt yn berthnasol i Llangynfelyn.

Maer rhestr hon yn cynnwys nifer o ewyllysiau nad yw'n dod o Llangynfelyn, ond ble mae'r cymynnwr yn cyfeirio at Llangynfelyn. Maer fath gyfeiriad yn wibiog erioed, ac fe fydd bob rhestr yn anghyflawn. Mae'r rhestr yn cynnwys ewyllysiau teulu Pryse Gogerddan, difater am bresenoldeb cyfeiriad i Llangynfelyn, oherwydd bod teulu Pryse yn piau rhan mawr y plwyf. Hefyd, yr oedd y teulu Pryse yn arglwydd maenor Geneu'r Glyn, sy'n cynnwys Llangynfelyn.

Rhestrir yr ewyllysiau yn nhrefn eu dyddiad. Fe all hynny bod nifer o flynyddoedd cyn marwolaeth y cymynnwr. Er enghraifft, ysgrifennwyd ewyllys Margaret David, Gwar-cwm, yn 1794. Felly gallwn ddibynnu arno ar gyfer aelodau ei theulu a fu'n byw yn 1794, ac am ei sefyllfa yn y flwyddyn honno, ond fe all hynny wedi newid yn llwyr erbyn 1812, pan profodd ei ewyllys. Mae cromfachau sgwr [] yn dangos blwyddyn profiant. Bydd y rhain yn cael eu newid i flwyddyn yr ysgrifennwyd yr ewyllys, pan rydym yn eu darganfod.

Until 1858, wills were proved by the courts of the Church of England (and pre-Reformation by the courts of the Catholic church). Most of the surviving Llangynfelyn wills were proved in the consistory court of the diocese of St Davids (llys yr esgob / llys consistori Tyddewi), and are now held with the records of the Church in Wales in NLW, where an index is available. These wills (the vast majority of the wills listed here) are listed as 'NLW, SD' followed by the year of probate (usually the same year, or the year after the testator died) and a reference number within the year. Most of the other pre-1858 wills listed here were proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (PCC) (Llys Uchelfraint Caergaint) and are now held by the PRO.

Since 1858, wills have been proved in the civil probate courts; the yearly calendar of probate grants in England and Wales is available in many county record offices.

The solicitors', estate and family collections held by NLW include large numbers of drafts and copies of wills, and unproved wills, both pre and post 1858, a number of which relate to the parish of Llangynfelyn.

This list includes a number of out-of-parish wills where the testator made reference to Llangynfelyn. Such references will always be elusive, and any list always incomplete. The list includes the wills of the family of Pryse of Gogerddan, regardless of whether the wills make reference to the parish, as Pryse owned a considerable part of the parish, besides being lord of the manor of Genau'r-glyn, which includes Llangynfelyn.

The wills are listed in chronological order of the date of the will, which may be many years before the death of the testator. For example the will of Margaret David of Gwar-cwm was written in 1794, and can be relied on for the members of her family alive in 1794, and the state of her affairs in 1794, which may have been entirely different by the time her will was proved in 1812, after her death. Where square brackets [ ] enclose a year in the first column, this gives the year of probate, which will be amended to the date the will was written, as the wills are examined.
